Posted this elsewhere, thought I would try it here as well:

I have a 20" Colt bbl (A1) that I want to cut down to a 16", open the gas port, and install the Vortex fh.

I know the Vortex will work fine with the thinner profile of the A1 vs A2, just needed some confirmation.

I am looking around for a used Vortex since I am going to Krylon the project.


Anyone see any forseeable problems with this plan?



ETA: Thanks for reading and any replies/suggestions!

the vortex will fit perfect!


i have a couple of pencil bbl.s that i cut down and installed flashhiders on and the only problem i ran into was with the regular split washers, they tend to ride over the short shoulder of a cut down pencil bbl. but instead i used crush washers that fit on the shoulder fine. with the vortex you will not need a washer if the threads arent long so it should shoulder up fine.
